The Lunchbox is held at St Luke’s and operates twice weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays, from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Its mission is to provide nutritious meals to people who might not otherwise have such meals and to provide an opportunity for fellowship and social interchange to those same people. Each team of volunteers is responsible for preparing and serving food one day a month. The Lunchbox Board is from the community at large.
